Hi to all,
I'm getting set to have my 38 Pugh mono hull stored on the hard for a while and I'm wondering about boat stands and where to get them or have some made. Does anyone know the angle to the hull that is used for these stands.
I have used them in the past on marina hardstands but the boat could be out of the water for 12 months and I don't want spend more on rent than purchasing or building my own.
Any helpful thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

Why don't you have a look around the yards where boats have been dry stored might have an old set.

Windsong.....I should imagine that the padded plate that goes against the hull would be hinged to the
support tube thereby finding the correct angle automatically.

You can usually find good used acrow-props at a reasonable price. Just make sure you keep them lubed, otherwise when you come to take them down, they'll be rusted. Unless you get them in aluminium.

Should be about $60 each, with hinged/pivot feet.
